The eternal agony of the urban commuter

On the platform a while back, early morning rush hour, one train had been cancelled, and another was late. I was using the time to sketch this commuter in her wraparound shades.

The platform announcer stuttered into life, and said "the next train will arrive within the next ten minutes".

And the man standing next to me huffed his exasperation, " they make it sound like it's a bloody bonus ! "


  1. You've caught that "oh God how much longer" stance perfectly.

  2. Now you mention it, she does look a bit pissed off, doesn't she. Hadn't noticed that.
